Peer-to-Peer empowers university students to prevent hate- and school-based violence through the development and deployment of dynamic products, tools, and initiatives that produce measurable results.
Peer-to-Peer: Creating a Message Against Hate
In partnership with the U.S. Embassy in Paris, the McCain Institute launched D’ÉGAL À ÉGAL: CRÉATION D’UN MESSAGE CONTRE LA HAINE in spring 2021. Four university teams throughout France are competing to create impactful initiatives, products, or tools to combat hate within their communities.
Peer-to-Peer: Protective Project
The McCain Institute hosted the Peer-to-Peer: Protective Project throughout 2020. In this national competition, university teams worked with a faculty advisor to develop and implement an initiative, product or tool designed to reduce hate- and school-based violence. Each team received a $1,000 budget to produce a real project with measurable results. The McCain Institute selected the top three teams to participate in a final competition with the opportunity to win awards up to $5,000.
